Not all networks ignored her Fox aired her funeral and Larry King mentioned her a couple of times. While Barbara's death is tragic, like the deaths of thousands who die young every year from AIDS and various other diseases, the networks have to make judgements on who to mention. Being the wife of a Bush Administration official is probably not enough to get mentioned.
To Larry King's credit (a rare thing), he also interviewed Ted Olson about Barbara. I saw about half of it, and the part that I saw was very professionally done
If you think that Barbara's life and contributions boil down to being "Being the wife of a Bush Administration official," then you do not know very much about her. She was a prominant, well-accomplished figure in Washington years before she married Ted.
